A solid has 10 faces: 4 triangles;1 Square; 4 hexagons; and 1 octagon, how many vertices does the solid have?

  • Geometry B -

    Euler showed that F+V-E=2, so now we know that

    E-V = 10
    Since each edge belongs to two polygons, there are (4*3+1*4+4*6+1*8)/2 = 24 edges

    So, there are 14 vertices

    seems reasonable, since all vertices belong to 3 or mlore polygons
